'I was born in Nigeria and I’ve had quite an exciting life.'
'My thoughts when I was first diagnosed was that of shock and disbelief actually. I lost my best friend to AIDS, so when I was diagnosed it was very much for me that I had come to the end of the road.'
'I made a deliberate decision within myself I wasn’t going to telly anybody and I was just going to die and though it took me three months before I started treatment I feel good within myself and I love the way I am.'
'To the people who are scared of testing: in the age of treatment, in the age of care and support that is of high standard, there is nothing for anybody to be afraid of.'
'It’s a life worth living.'
'We have to be the voice of change. Nobody is going to do it for us.'
'Let us see ourselves as one because if we are going to win the war against HIV we all have got to work together. It starts with me.'
